A Prince Harry Newsweek interview has the U.K. in shock. Harry asked, “Is there any one of the royal family who wants to be king or queen? I don’t think so …” Prince Harry and Prince William have never been totally at ease since the death of their mother. Although he lives in the privilege of royalty he wants to modernize the crown, have it adapt and conform for better service to the public in the age people live in today.

He is careful to preserve the legacy of his grandmother, Queen Elizabeth, but knows he and his brother must take things further and decide how the future of the monarchy will look.

He is fifth in line for the crown, but shows the most charisma of of the current closest heirs. Through his humanitarian work, he has shown he is a natural communicator. He talks with people from all walks of life in a way that is so natural it is easy to forget he is a prince. It’s as if he puts royal status aside and forgets about it when he talks.

Part of this comes from his 10 years of military service. He loved being out there away from royal privilege. He has a natural knack for connecting with people, and especially current and former military members.

His interview comments about not wanting the crown likely reflect a wish to relate to people living a normal life outside of royal circles.

He stresses in the interview they are holding their roles as a duty to the people, rather than a privilege to themselves, and hopes to continue doing good work that benefits people.
